Do you know what I like most about strolling through the streets these days when summer is already beginning to feel? See the new flavors of artisan ice-cream parlours!

Of course! So much time looking for and preparing recipes with marijuana like coffee, brownie, truffles, milk, among others sweet flavors or pizza and cannabis oil in salads among some of the salty flavors and I had completely overlooked that I could do it in ice cream!
And you, have you thought about it? Would you like some? Well, if so, stay! Today I’m going to tell you how to make marijuana ice cream for which I invite you to take paper and pen and take note of the ingredients and the steps to follow, but especially, of some clues for marijuana ice cream to retain the flavor of cannabis, but also its effects.
Cannabis- Ice cream Recipe Number 1: Banana- Honey Ice-cream
Let’s start with the most common and basic type of Cannabis Ice-cream. You can whip this up when you don’t have a flavour preference, but we do make use of banana, honey, and rum, so if you don’t like one of these, you can either replace it or look ahead for the other recipes that I have shared.
What will you need?
- 10g ground bud (This can vary according to your capacity/effects wanted-increase or decrease accordingly)
- 500ml heavy cream
- 2 tablespoon of butter/olive oil
- 2 Ripe Bananas (400g)
- 3 tablespoon rum
- 75g sugar (Or any healthy alternative you want to use)
- A pinch of salt (To bring out the flavours)
- If you want to add any additional nuts, chocolate chips, etc, you can do so.
- One large saucepan
- A whisk
- A bowl/plate
- A Grinder
- Freezer container to store the ice cream
Steps to make the Cannabis Ice-cream
Step 1: Place the saucepan on medium heat and add your heavy cream into it. Make sure the flame remains on medium unless you want to burn it(duh).
Step 2: Keep stirring the cream for a few minutes, and then add your butter, salt, and sugar into the same saucepan. Make sure you’re constantly stirring it.
Step 3: Once the mixture is blended well, it’s time to add the cannabis. Use a herb grinder to shred the decarboxylated herbs, and add them into the heavy cream mixture.
Step 4: While the mixture is heating on the side, cut the banana in a bowl/plate and mash it up with a fork.
Step 5: Add the mashed banana, the honey, and rum to the mixture and stir it for some more time.
Step 6: Pour the mixture into a freezer container and you’re done! Make sure the container is a comfortable one from where you can scoop a good amount of ice-cream when you’re craving for one.
Cannabis Ice-cream Recipe #2: The Famous Chocolate Ice-cream
Let’s get ready for round 2 of our edibles. This time, we are discussing the recipe of Chocolate Ice-cream, something that makes everyone’s mouth water! Doesn’t it?
Here’s what you will need to make this delicious ice-cream.
- 3-3.5 Grams Cannabis (Decarboxylated)
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Milk
- A pinch of salt
- 2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder (Unsweetened)
- 55 grams Chocolate (Semisweet)
- 2 Cups Heavy Cream
- 3 Egg Yolks
Step 1: Combine Marijuana, Oil, Sugar, Milk, Cocoa Powder, & salt into a Saucepan over Medium Heat. Make sure you’re stirring continuously.
Step 2: After all the ingredients are well-mixed, filter it through a cheesecloth or strainer, allowing the last bit of goodness to come to the other side.
Step 3: Now Pour the strained liquid on the Saucepan again, and put it on a simmer. In a small bowl, add your egg yolk and whisk it lightly.
Add about 1/2 cup of the hot mixture and stir it for a few seconds before adding everything back to the saucepan.
Step 4: By this time, your mixture should start thickening. Be careful not to boil it. Bring it off the heat, and add the semi-sweet Chocolate after chopping them up.
Step 5: Now that this delicious chocolate sauce is ready, pour it into a chilled bowl and refrigerate it for at least 2-3 hours. We are NOT done yet!
